I wasn't sure to put this in scenery or painting, but since its about painting i thought this is the best place.
Im making a scenery piece, its basicly a crater with a burnt land speeder in it...
How should i paint the speeder? i was just going to paint it black then drybrush it silver and wash is black to make it look burnt.
Or i could do it rusty or just badly damaged... what do you think and how should i paint it?
I would paint it rusted and here is how to do it!
1. Undercoat with black spray.
2. drybrush the entire speeder with boltgun metal (unless you want it coloured, in which case paint it the colour you want and then LIGHTLY drybrush over that with boltgun on coloured areas).
3. wash the entire thing with devlan mud.
4. get a small sponge (an old brush will do the job well too, one where all the bristles have flayed abit) and lightly dab it in mechrite red. then dab it on the areas that are most likely to rust.
5. repeat the process but this time with blazing orange and then tin bitz over the areas already with mechrite red on them.
Hope that helps you!
Sometimes the best defense is a good offense... Wait, what?
Kinda going with the 1st guy, metal wont generally turn black when burnt. it CAN but from a general fire it wont do much, it can get blackened a little, but thats usually anything that is on the metal (grease from fingers, paint, body fillers etc.) but most of that will come off with some rubbing of a rag or a heavy rain.
Metal CAN stay black, but you need an pretty immense amount of SUDDEN heat that will not melt it. A melta gun MAY be able to achieve this, but I wouldnt know as they are not real. lol
Rust is likely the best way to go.
k ill test some rust tecneques(i can't spell) and ill post what i find.
I spelt it so badly that my spell checker couldn't help... though im ok most of the time. Now back to testing out that rusty scheme.
Im going to try the salt method... its going to be burned with rust patches everywere
I will post some pictures... I am testing the salt atm. and I have found a perfect colour for the rust... stipple blazing ornage, then vermin brown, then a tiny bit of bestial brown and tin bitz.
The land speeder was salvaged and I have stripped the paint, the marines were cut out and I have reconstructed the seats with plasticard.
Pictures coming soon.
